Last weekend it was time for the annual battery of tests, where the swimmers in Emilie’s club took part in different test indoors and outdoors. Compared to the results made last year Emilie has improved a lot and one of her strengths are the kicks and especially the dolphin kicks. She has always been good at kicking and her backstroke kicks are actually faster than her freestyle kicks!
Taking part in the Speedo cup competition the next day (September 10) she tried to profit from her fast kicks, and in 100 m freestyle the time stopped at 1:00.23 – a bit harmful since she could had gone faster had she not been too close to the wall in the turnings. Nevertheless, this was her PB on short course in 100 as well as in 50 m freestyle and 50 m butterfly. A very good start of the new season!
